In psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.  Learning to reach a state of flow (we call it “FLO” Finding Limitless Opportunities in life), or maximum potential, in your life can benefit you in many ways.

For children it translates to better school grades, more focus, improved concentration, higher self-esteem and more.  For adults it means; better stress release, improved awareness, better physical and mental health, more energy, and learning to “tap into” the full awareness of life.  Martial Arts training is the perfect path towards achieving “flo” in you or your child’s life.  Our professional instructors and coaches will be your guide toward reaching your fullest potential both on and off the mats.

Stress-Free

Your Spa-Like Experience  When you walk into Flo Life BJJ+ you’ll experience a clean,
professional “spa-like” environment.  Our “boutique style” school offers a more personalized training experience, with amenities to make your transition back into the “real world” stress free.  Our school feels less like a gym and more like your own personal haven as you escape the real world.  We have a large, clean fully matted training area with everything you need for a challenging Jiu-Jitsu or kickboxing class.  Including the use of technology in the classroom to enhance your learning experience.

Technology in the classroom to enhance the learning experience.

Our larger than life 55 inch TV monitor assists our instructors in teaching techniques by showing them at multiple angles and in slow motion.  Students find that this unique structure helps significantly in learning and retaining new techniques and concepts.   Our students also have access to our vast public and private library of over 1,000 BJJAfter40 and BJJForKids videos and instructional techniques.  After you train you can relax in our private student lounge or grab a hot shower before heading back to work.  We also offer the convenience of a towel service, eliminating worries about wet towels in your gym bag or car.

Adult Flo  Adults of all ages participate in our martial arts classes.  At Flo Life we offer both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and kickboxing classes.  BJJ is an ancient Samurai battlefield art, adapted for modern society as a lethal self-defense system.  Jiu-Jitsu, translated as the ‘Gentle Art’ is practiced by men, women of all ages.  BJJ teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique and leverage.  Not only will you learn self-defense, meet people and have fun…you’ll also get in the best shape of your life training Jiu-Jitsu!

Rave Review

“Mike is easy to learn from and understand and I really like his teaching style. I’ve been doing jiu jitsu for years now, but there was a lot of new stuff in here that I found very creative and innovative. Great job!”
